If you take the Sarfa bus, they look like this:
If arriving at BCN terminal 2 (most low-cost carriers do), there are coach parkings between the B and C buildings. At the far end in the picture below, you can see the buses parked in both sides of the street. Sarfa is going to be picking up people from the right side (the same side as the terminal building B).
You have to get down at the "Lloret de Mar" bus station.
From there, you walk less than ten minutes, until you reach the hotel. There is a street that goes below it, and the entrance is to the left:
When you enter, the lobby is very bright, with views of the garden and swimming pool.
The rooms are simple, but comfortable. They have been recently renovated.
There are many amenities in the hotel, specially in the court yard, around the two outdoor swimming pools (there is also an indoors swimming pool in the spa area).
There are plenty of lounge chairs for sunbathing, or just chilling by the pool.
There is also a café/snack bar, with an outdoor terrace which has a moveable roof and heating -in case of need-.
You can enjoy playing pétanque, pool, air hockey, some arcades, and even board games.
The hotel seems well prepared for wheelchair access. Every stair has a ramp or an elevator next to it.
The room for hacklabs and talks is huge, with three divisions and independent accesses from the garden.
Before high season, when it gets full of tourists, you will be able to still enjoy a quiet village, the great beaches, and some sightseeing.
Do you fancy a hack-camp in a place like this?
As you might have heard by now, Ana (Guerrero) and I are organising a small Debian event this spring: the Debian SunCamp 2016.
It is going to be different to most other Debian events. Instead of a busy schedule of talks, SunCamp will focus on the hacking and socialising aspect.
We have tried to make this event the simplest event possible, both for organisers and attendees. There will be no schedule, except for the meal times at the hotel. But these can be ignored too, there is a lovely bar that serves snacks all day long, and plenty of restaurants and cafés around the village.
One of the things that makes the event simple, is that we have negotiated a flat price for accommodation that includes usage of all the facilities in the hotel, and optionally food. We will give you a booking code, and then you arrange your accommodation as you please, you can even stay longer if you feel like it!
The rooms are simple but pretty, and everything has been renovated very recently.
We are not preparing a talks programme, but we will provide the space and resources for talks if you feel inclined to prepare one.
You will have a huge meeting room, divided in 4 areas to reduce noise, where you can hack, have team discussions, or present talks.
Of course, some people will prefer to move their discussions to the outdoor area.
Or just skip the discussion, and have a good time with your Debian friends, playing pétanque, pool, air hockey, arcades, or board games.
